Since April Fool’s Day is cancelled this year we thought we’d share some helpful tips we’ve found useful these last few weeks of working from home. Recollective’s investment over the years to put our systems online and accommodate remote working has enabled our team to continue to provide our clients with the professional services and exceptional experience that they expect from us.
Internally, we have set up a daily morning scrum to share a brief overview of our work day and an afternoon tea break video chat to connect and relax a little. While we miss our co-working space the HiVE and all our colleagues there, we’re grateful to have access to the HiVE’s virtual kitchen set up in a Zoom meeting room. We enjoyed a virtual happy hour last week and are planning more to come.
Transitioning to working from home full time can be quite a challenge. Sticking to a routine, changing out of those pyjamas, and having a separate work area can all help with productivity. Sr Green Building Specialist Tim Tewsley found this helpful guide to lighting when on a video call – though if you’re going to turn yourself into a potato or decide to stay in bed you won’t need to worry about lighting.
We hope everyone is coping well in these unprecedented times. Feel free to share your favourite work from home tips!
